CISI exams are usually sat by candidates in exam centres, with multiple choice exams being undertaken at the centres by computer-based testing.
The professional body offers qualification standards for those working in wealth management, Financial Planning and capital markets.
Over the last 12 months over 41,000 exams have been sat in 81 countries.
The CISI’s remote invigilation testing solution has been developed with Prometric and means candidates can now sit their multiple-choice exams at the location of their choice. A live invigilator is present online throughout the exam with audio and video monitoring to ensure there is no malpractice and to assist throughout.
Simon Culhane, Chartered FCSI, and CISI CEO, said: “We are extremely pleased to now be able to offer this remote invigilation exam testing solution for our multiple-choice question exams. This will be welcomed by candidates and by our firms, as members continue to upskill and increase their knowledge during this unprecedented time. Some of our physical test centres will stay open during the national lockdown but many will be closed and candidates now have the reassurance that they can sit their exam, as planned, remotely.
“Our main priority now is to ensure that all our exam candidates, wherever they are based in the world, have the opportunity to complete the examinations they have been revising for and to enable them to take the next step in their personal professional qualification and learning journeys.”
